Lord Voldemort Has To Decide On Sale of Evening Standard


Lord Voldemort of Moroccan Boys and Hartlepool has to decide whether the sale of the London Evening Standard to ex-KGB oligarch Alexander Lebedev should be allowed to proceed, or if he should refer it to Ofcom on “public interest” grounds.

Presumably one of the questions that Mandy will be asking himself is "Does Lebedev have a big yacht that I can be entertained on?"

The other thing that will be uppermost in his mind is whether he should take a geiger counter along to any meetings.

it's 'Moroccan'

Too hungover to add more.

You're right. Can't get the staff.

Voldemort is the best nickname for Mandelbum that I have ever heard. Sums him up nicely.

The thought of him becoming irradiated and dying a long slow, and hopefully excruciating death with time to reflect, has brightened my day.

Or if Lebedev will bribe him with enough money, foreign trips and/or young Moroccan boys to make him forget 'public interest' in favour of self interest (no change there then for Lord Voldemort). Earthlet Nigel - you paint a very, very pleasing picture.

And of course, it will mean an end to the Evening Standard digging into Mandy's Mortgage Finance on his current Primrose Hill Abode.

Expect to see Andrew Gilligan looking for a new job shortly.

Or being found in the woods...
